    Honolulu Hawaii Thursday, June 4, 2009: “The Chinese are Coming, The Chinese are Coming” Paul Pei, Executive Director of Sales and Marketing, Ocean Park, Hong Kong - Mainland China is a massive market for the entire world. With a population of 1.3 billion, it has already proven its power in tourism, and this is only the beginning. Its citizens are eager to travel, to visit other cultures, and to experience what they have not been able to do. A Memorandum of Understanding between the US and China has opened the door for a potentially lucrative flow of visitors to Hawaii. But, are you ready to capture your share of this huge opportunity? Do you understand what their interests are, their sensitivity to price and quality, their expectations of service, how they behave, and more basically, how to reach and communicate with them? Paul Pei is Executive Director of Sales and Marketing at Ocean Park Hong Kong, a marine animal theme park that served over 5 million visitors in 2008, of which approximately half were from mainland China. Raised in Honolulu, he has spent most of his career in the orient, for thirty years in the hotel business in Singapore and Hong Kong and the last nine years at Ocean Park. He has been intimately involved in attracting and serving the 2.5 million visitors from China that visited his park last year. Hong Kong in total welcomed 16.8 million visitors from China in 2008, which now represents the largest segment of Hong Kong’s thriving tourism industry. Mr. Pei will share their experiences and provide tips on how to welcome and serve these visitors, who now spend more per person per day on vacation here than our Japanese visitors.
